Wrath of Kahn 2: The Return of Miss Demeanor

Disturbing news out of the West Bank of Minneapolis. From the cradle of Minnesota conservative punditry (as the former home precinct of legends such as Sarah Janacek, James Lileks and me), a fall from grace with shocking allegations of voter fraud and intimidation in the race for Minnesota House of Representatives, District 60B. First, 42-year incumbent Phyllis Kahnaccuses her upstart DFL opponent Mohamud Noor of benefiting from a biased election judge in the run-up to the primary election: The filing alleges that election judge Fadumo Yusuf asked voters at City Hall whether they were voting for “our Somali brother” or “the old Jewish lady,” apparent references to Noor and Kahn. Election judges must be neutral under state law. The only election law this appears to violate is the official oath taken by election judges, as detailed in Minnesota statute 204B.24: Each election judge shall sign the following oath before assuming the duties of the office: […]

Sheila Speaks

STATEMENT FROM SHEILA KIHNE—  The 104 delegates that attended the March 8th Senate District 48B endorsing convention represented a broad cross section of Republicans in the district.  Putting my name in as a challenger that morning was the best way to ensure that delegates be allowed a private vote during this important election year. As a result of this action, I was able to address the delegation and communicate my opinion that elected leaders should not compromise our principles by voting against the Republican Party platform. And if they do so, they should not expect an automatic endorsement from the hard-working volunteers and delegates that help get them elected–and re-elected–to public office. I also confirmed that a fair sampling of Eden Prairie Republicans share my desire to elect leaders who will focus on a single issue: smaller government.

Minnesota is Already a Primary State

There is an ongoing debate within the Republican Party in Minnesota about the relative merit of primaries vs. endorsements. One thing that I hear too often among activists is people asking whether or not Minnesota will become a “primary state.” The truth is that Minnesota is already a primary state. Minnesota holds a partisan primary for major political parties, currently in August. The winner of the primary election, by party, goes on to be the general election candidate for that party.  (This is true for all partisan races except U.S. President, which I will set aside for another post.)
